Rear axel blocks on 08

The rear axel blocks are not the same size. Which one goes on which side?

One has an L shaped lip on one edge, that one goes on the sprocket side, and the L shaped lip goes forward. When using the marks to align the chain, count from the back edge of the block forward, or you'll be one full mark off.

grayracer,,you rock!!! flat out, i was thinkin i had a bent swingarm cause when i used the notches, the bike rode crooked so i just used a tape from the axle to the swingarm bolt, never knew you had to read them back to front,,thanks

Bet the bike was pulling to the right.If you count from front to back with the notches,the rear tire will favor pointing right.
